I was fortunate enough to attend births with both Brooke and Rebecca as a baby nurse and knew I wanted to hire them even before our interview. I can't say enough about how amazing they both are. After losing our first child, we knew we needed extra support for the birth of our rainbow baby. As a nurse and doula myself I'm comfortable with the birth process but knew that it was unknown territory for my husband. Brooke and Rebecca did a beautiful job supporting us both through nine days of prodromal labor followed by a quick active labor. Their calm, reassuring presence was exactly what we needed as we navigated days of uncertainty with contractions that came and went as baby turned herself into a less than ideal position. We talked to them each by phone (as they traded off call and attended other births) and Rebecca came to our home to help us through some Spinning Babies maneuvers and to talk through our frustrations. Brooke attended our delivery and was such a soothing presence as contractions hit hard and I pushed out my big, beautiful girl exactly the way I had envisioned. She managed to get some beautiful photos that I will always treasure. My midwife was so impressed with Brooke that she asked for her card to refer other families and we gladly recommend this fantastic duo to any expectant parents.
